The best of the series so far, still a disappointment in some regards.
26 August 2007 | by Aaron1375See all my reviews

Seeing as how they had to make this one the conclusion despite the fact they were going for a six parter the makers of this game did a relatively good job on the story. However, one can not help but feel there is an entire episode of the Xenosaga series left out between this one and part two. As there is a giant piece of the story that you can only find about if you read the story in the area provided in the menu screen. Still, this one wraps up quite nicely despite all of that and the story keeps you wondering what is going to happen next. The ending is a bit bizarre and might even offend some, but hey it surprised me. Shion and the gang are getting closer to finding out the cause of it all, the mysterious force that seems to be guiding all into an epic battle. The fight is the best yet as you have many cool moves to perform, and the robots are great...my only complaint is that they had no place in the final battle as I had my robots super strong and nearly unbeatable by the end. There are also characters that did not get their fair shake of the story either, such as Ziggy. You only get a brief peek as to what it is all about for him. Still, he had one uber cool moved called choke that had to be the best fight move ever in a role-playing game. The music is great this time and even though this is the end a sequel door was still left open. So be prepared for the most emotional of the three Xenosagas as this one is very sad, however it is also sort of happy in the end.
